    • Hi there I was hoping for some advice.   Last year I hired a kitchen fitter to fit my kitchen. I paid him £100 deposit and he began the work. I left the country on holiday and my dad was unhappy with the quality. He’d rushed and some screws had left marks on the other side of the wood, he’d put some draw runners in upside down and in the wrong place. My dad asked him to assemble a drawer as proof of skill. The fitter did this and then declined to continue the job, citing humiliation / embarrassment and not wanting to continue. At this point they had assembled half of the carcasses (kitchen units) in half a day and left.   He said he wanted a further £150 to match his day rate for the work he did and as per his T&C’s (see below). I’ve refused on the grounds of insufficient care and skill.   This is now going to mediation with the possibility of it going further. He claims if it goes further he will go for the full amount of the job as per T&C’s of a further £850. I feel £100 is a fair amount for the work he did and don’t want to pay anymore.   Furthermore, our initial conversation over Facebook he stated the job would be “£950. £850 if the carcasses don’t need doing” this would suggest, to me anyway, that he values the carcasses being made is worth £100, which he has been paid, even though he and his employee did half.   Where would this likely go if it couldn’t be solved with mediation?   What is the likelihood this would be ruled in my favour?   And how much chance does he have of getting a further £850 for one days work after initially asking for £150?!   His T&C’s do state that “if work is then fully stopped due to a disagreement no deposit will be refunded and seek £250 for the stop of work” is that even legal? As well as his suggestion the work done was worth £100   Thanks in advance.

    • Yes, to CEL, using snail mail again, again getting a free Certificate of Posting.  How about something like:   "Dear Ashley,   Re: PCN no. XXXXX   cheers for your LBA.   If you'd bothered to look at the photos of the vehicle in question you'd have seen the registration number is XXXXX.  I have never owned or driven such a vehicle.   The £9.99 ANPR cameras you buy second hand on eBay have confused this registration number with my vehicle XXXXX and as you're too bone idle to do any checking my time has been wasted sorting out your incompetence.   If you want to take me to court regarding a vehicle you know full well isn't even mine then fine, go for it, I'll enjoy thrashing you and claiming unreasonable behaviour costs under CPR27.14(2)(g)".   However, hang on for 24 hours to see what others think, there are Caggers who have years & years of experience with CEL.
    • Yes, I cancelled it in my mobile banking App.   Thanks
    • Thank you, I agree there should have been an application sent out.  It might be in the post but this is too late, technically court should be communicating by email now.   I will have to email the court as phone line is not an option.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

First off i would like to say thank you  to all the people that contribute to this site, I do hope you have all been safe over the last few months and remain safe for much longer.

 

It’s been several months since I’ve been working and was on SSP for some time.

It took me a while to admit that I needed medication as my self-esteem was on an all time low, due to Bullying at work,

I sought help from the doctor and as I slowly started to understand what had happened

 

I decided to open a grievance to my HR department  rather than walk from my job .

I’ve since come off the medication and have been furloughed’ but have continually worked with the HR department whilst in furlough.

 

I decided to look through my work email for certain information that would support my grievance to find they prevented my access apparently this was company policy ‘and at this time I was off sick but still have no access.

I decided to ask for a SAR in hope that I could find emails to prove that I was being setup to fail.

 

Having received the SAR the emails was not in full, they were summarised this was very difficult to understand the full content of the email, HR have told me that they can not issue the full emails due to GDPR.

 

There were several people that I included within my request’ person 1 2 3 and 4, whilst the summary contains person 1 2 and 3 person 4 seems to have disagreed due to GDPR can they do this ?

Thank you for your help

Hi, you can only ask for emails about yourself so I am not sure what person 1 - 4 have to do with it. Just request an entire verbatim email history of everything pertaining to yourself. They can redact bits about other people.

Thankyou, I included 4 people as  i believe they have had email conversations regarding myself, although HR have advised me that 1 person has chosen not to share there email, can they do that?

HR have sent me a  a pdf with Summary conversations not the whole email which is difficult to understand is this allowed ?

 

thankyou

I think that's what Emmzzi was saying, you can have emails about you but details about other people can be redacted.

The person has information about me within emails this is why i wish to see them.

 

Am i right in saying that HR should give me the whole emails as its been summarised at the moment so i'm having difficulty understand the whole context of the email.

 

sorry i'm having difficulty explaining myself

you can ask for the whole text with bits not about you redacted. you can't force them to give you info about other people.

Thanks Emmzzi 

Thats all i want,

Ive a real feeling that person a has been talking to person b about me which has made the situation unbearable,

 

I know its a silly question and have always been told the devil is within the detail,

would i expect an email in its raw format?

so just like it looks when you press print ?

 

what they've given me is half the email and gave a summary only, they want me to attend the hearing on Monday morning

if the other half of the email is not about you, then that's all you are getting.

I see you seem to be on the other side I merely want a fair hearing and if it proves that certain individuals are guilty of bullying me then surely I'm entitled.

 

I'm wont be demanding i will be asking for what is right under the ICO

I'm taking no sides, I just find "demanding" gets everything out of proportion fast.

 

Good luck. I'll leave you to it.

Emmzzi has been here for a long time and knows her stuff. You don't have to accept her advice but just because you don't like the advice doesn't mean it's wrong.

The law around data that has other persons data included is rather awkward as the employer(data controller) must protect their data when showing you yours.

 

This means that different people apply a different standard to letters that contain other people's data,

some will refuse to show you anything,

others will redact. 

 

If person 1 sends an email to person 2 about you the employer can redact the names of the sender and recipient and show you the text

 

but as said,

others will say that as even showing the contents may identify the sender or recipient so they will refuse to let you see it without a court order.

 

This may be against the intention of the law but fulfils the letter of the law

ask for all data and if there are things that you think are missing t

hen ask specifically for them and say that you will be happy to see a redacted version but not a summary and see where that goes.

 

they may claim  some stuff is privileged information or that they are withholding it due to your mental state.

That is legal if correctly applied.

Good morning all,

 

I have an update for you all,

 

shortly after my first hearing i was told i would need to have a rehearing with another company,

Obviously i agreed

 

after the initial grievance hearing the person then asked me to enter into a private conversation,

I have received the settlement offer and are disgusted as its not even half of my monthly salary,

 

I'm not sure what to do at this stage as i don't have the funds to finance a solicitor

 

any advice would be appreciated.
